Old and crumbling...

Passed by these stairs downtown the other day, then returned to have a closer look. They 'spoke to me,' but not in color. I think black and white is best here.

That doorway has seen a lot of comings and goings! What a pretty grille to the right.

Absolutely a monochrome image. Fading beauty, a a well worn facade intrigues the visitor. I hope your own visit eslewhere is going well.

I think that you're right.

Cette légère usure au centre de ces marches... et derrière la porte tout un passé...

Sure, the black and white is very nice and perfect!

Sometimes old and crumbling is beautiful—as here. And you're so right about the b&w.

You are right - wonderful B&W. You've got a great eye for the occasions to use B&W (I still remember the stairs in the old building.)
